The 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring shares the same basic platform and mechanicals as the Elantra sedan. But it's quiet a different vehicle in some respects, with a sportier appearance inside and out and a more premium European-influenced look and feel.
Just as in the sedan, a 138-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is quite gutsy whether you choose the automatic transmission or the five-speed manual. Elantra Touring models get a different suspension calibration, along with bigger stabilizer bars, with a much sportier feel overall.
Both Elantra models are roomy—and almost large enough to be considered mid-size by some standards—but Touring models are even more space-efficient; they have a high roofline, which allows them almost SUV-like utility and versatility, and the split backseat folds forward flat. It’s a neat, well-designed layout.
